San Diego, CA (PressExposure) April 06, 2009 -- Imagine a gathering of new and old friends surrounded by stacks of colorful paper, a scattering of ribbons and buttons, and a few sets of rubber stamps with creative designs and inspiring sentiments. This scenario of friends crafting together and enjoying a fun hobby may just be the ticket to relieving stress and helping people "get connected" during these tough economic times. During the month of April, Stampin' Up! is encouraging people to relieve their stress and connect with others by learning a new hobby, such as card making or scrapbooking.
"During the 3 years, I have been a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! I have really come to understand the underlying appeal that has kept me crafting--it is the connection I am able to have with others who enjoy the same things I do; the wonderful stress relief I get when I sit down and create something; as well as the opportunity I have to own my own business that revolves around my hobby," says Michelle P. Fischer, San Diego, Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator. "My business has become even more important to me during these tough economical times, and I'm so happy to share that opportunity with others looking for a way to supplement their income."
This same philosophy of getting connected with others is shared by more than 40,000 Stampin' Up! independent consultant or "demonstrators" who have taken their passion for the hobby of card making and scrapbooking and turned it into a career, not only providing extra income, but a vast social network that they can turn to for emotional support during hard times and laughter during the best of times.
